[Reactive Multiple File Upload] Custom description/instruction
Reactive icon
Forge component by José Pedro Proença
Application Type

Good day,

First of all, awesome component which is easy to use! 

Our users prefer to not use English in their interface, so I wondered if it's possible to have a custom message via an optional input parameter? If the input is empty, it could default to the current value.

I know I can override the component with my own version, but I'll lose any changes when doing updates in the future. It's likely that other developers would also like to have more control over this instruction message (maybe to upload document x, y, z).


I'm currently facing this issue as well. It would be nice to be able to change the language.



Hi Geertjan and Bart,

We will check this request and update the component soon.

By the way do you want to change only the translation or even the text: Drop. File here…

Best regards,


Hi Luís,

For me, translating for now would be sufficient, but I think there's something to be said for both options. 



A translation could work, although sometimes a literal translation may look a bit weird. In Dutch, dropping a file is better translated by 'dragging a file'. Also, where would the translation come from?

I guess it would make sense to have two optional inputs. One to replace the text 'Drop a file here or' and one for 'browse to upload' with some descriptions what it's used for. When empty, we can just default to the English text :).

Thanks for your time, @Luís Monteiro
